Annoying Facebook Pop-ups

Dear Computer Lady,

When I am on FB and someone comments on something I posted but I am not looking at at the moment, the page pops up and will not leave.

If I click on any spot or link the pop up page will not leave. How can I stop this. I have to get off FB and start over. If I open a new page on FB it is also there if the old page is still open.

Thanks, Ann

Dear Ann,

I have not seen this behavior on a comment to a post, only with messenger chats.

Have you tried hovering your mouse over the upper right corner of the pop up page to see if an X to close the pop up appears? That is how I close the messenger windows.
